Lol I agree, reading books is the best. However, I won a Kindle at work so I signed up on amazon and did some browsing. They have tons of classics that are absolutley free. I loaded my Kindle up with some great books. I like the kindle a lot actually. I still prefer to read a printed book, but having a hundered books at my fingertips is pretty nice and its pretty easy to use/read also.

Here, just saw this. Designed just for you, I think.

If you're nostalgic for the days when print ruled the world, but don't want to be bothered with actual newspapers, the late designer Tobias Wong's "Times of New York" candle, inspired by The New York Times, may be for you.

According to Project No. 8, "Wong proposed producing a candle with the fragrance of newsprint inspired by The New York Times, an institution he greatly admired."


Various Projects and Josée Lepage of Bondtoo were close collaborators and friends of Wong's. We have realized his Times of New York candle in a limited edition of 1000.

The scent of the candle is newsy, with hints of guaiacwood, cedar, musk, and spice. Characterized by "a powdery note and velvet nuance," the scent is meant to mimic the aroma of black ink on newsprint.

The limited edition candle goes for $65, which could buy a 12-week subscription to The New York Times. But we really don't recommend burning those.

They should also make some that smell like reel-to-reel tapes and stone tablets
And little early birdy gave my anus curly whirly, and asked me if i needed a ride!

But you boyz are MEAN! BURNING books?! *gasp* So mean in fact, I'm taking to my quill pen and inkwell to write a letter of complaint! Sealed and stamped with wax, of course and sent off in the mail. You should receive it within a few weeks time, whereupon I expect an apology for your cruel suggestion!

By the way, LPs and 45s are making a comeback, for realz. Too bad I sold all mine when I moved :cry:

*please note, I really do have a quill pen and inkwells and have been known to mail an actual letter on occasion*
:bas:


You should just write in your own blood... or keep someone locked up and use them for their "ink"...

I don't have a quill pen, but I do have a seal and wax and some really great hemp paper. Running low on that, actually. Always got that stuff from this great stationery store in Kansas City but I guess I need to find one locally since I don't travel there anymore.
